Afternoon tea in the Manor Restaurant

Your visit

Eat, shop & stay

Refuel in our restaurant and cafés and find fine wines, great gifts and unique pieces inspired by Waddesdon's art collection in our shops. Our Five Arrows Hotel at the gates of the Manor also offers a great place to stay.

Where to eat

At Waddesdon Manor, we offer several eating places and areas, some indoors, others outdoors, depending on the season. Our eating places for winter weekends (7 Jan – 19 Mar) include indoors at the Stables Café, and outdoors take-away options, snuggled under sheepskin rugs outside the Stables and the Manor coffee bar.

All the food served at Waddesdon is prepared in our kitchens. The menus change with the seasons to reflect the best ingredients available. Our dedicated chefs seek out the finest local suppliers and insist on only the freshest, best-quality produce.

Housed in the old stables, painted in light pastel colours, it’s furnished with Jasper Morrison air chairs giving a contemporary look against the original features. Outdoor seating and blankets are available in the courtyard too.
